After innumerable warm chocolate cakes, I finally decided it was time to take a closer look at Bakerzin's menu to see what else it had to offer. Thankfully, the choice was made easier by its new dessert tapas range, which meant we could sample a few at a go. Needless to say, we were subconsciously more drawn by the chocolate-based items, but nonetheless managed to agree on a less exclusive spread of 5.
Prime place goes to the chocolate and caramel ice cream above, which was crunchy, smooth, sweet and bitter all at the same time (and photographs beautifully too). Also worth a try is the banana pizza (right). This was special: didn't realise how well caramelized banana and cheese would work together, though there's no doubt that without the sweet, crisp filo pastry base to bind the flavours, this wouldn't have tasted so good.
The other three items were the chocolate shooter (really just hot chocolate with a layer of milk on the top), the ginger jelly with longan (this was quite refreshing actually, but the canned longans were a downer) and something called 'floating island'. Sound obscure? Well, it had two globs of foam, a drizzle of passionfruit coulis, a sprig of mint and a chocolate soup base, if that helps. Tastewise, it was quite nondescript.
Total damage: S$15.50 (US$9.50). Now where else could you get 5 desserts for that price?
